Remember: Once that sun goes down, it can get a little chilly. We highly recommend that you bring along warmer clothing, no matter how hot it may have been during the day.
We have a variety of food and beverage options through our various concessionaires. Large restroom buildings are located in convenient locations on our outdoor plazas. In addition to available ATMs, concession stands also accept credit and debit cards.
If you plan to have a beverage of the malted or spirited variety during your visit, please remember that you must wear a wristband to purchase or consume alcohol. There are several wristbanding stations located throughout the venue where your ID will be checked and a wristband will be issued. And, as always, please drink in moderation.

Our website has a great seat locater tool. Click here to find where your seats are.
The show will go on rain or shine, but this is the Pacific Northwest and we are always prepared for the wet stuff. So break out the Gore-tex before heading out.
Please remember, for everyone's safety and enjoyment, umbrellas should remain at home or in your vehicles.
If space is available, you can always stop up at the Ticket Office and purchase an upgrade to reserved seat inside the covered and dry Pavilion.
Also, for the enjoyment of all lawn patrons, please remember no outside elevated lawn or beach chairs are allowed inside the venue. The only those seats that set directly onto the ground will be allowed inside. The Amphitheater does rent a uniform elevated chair for lawn patrons for a nominal fee at the merchandise kiosks.
Parking Lots open at 5:00 PM, and the outdoor plazas will open at 5:30 PM. However, initially, the seating area will be closed as the final preparations for a great show are being completed and will open at approximately 6:00 PM.
The Sleep Country Amphitheater has parking capacity for over 7000 vehicles, and event ticketholders may park in the Amphitheater general parking lots for no charge.
The distance you would walk is dependent upon where you park in the general parking areas. The farthest parking areas are about a mile to the entrance of the seating area, and the closest, about a quarter of a mile. When you arrive onsite, you will be directed by parking staff where to park, which is determined by the volume of incoming traffic and the need to reduce the traffic queue at the time you arrive.
For closer parking and priority egress, we strongly recommend utilizing our YES Parking Program. Details can be found at our website, http://www.sleepcountryamphitheater.com/directions-parking.html .
Also please be aware that there are no offsite parking facilities nearby. However, C-TRAN runs a shuttle service for some Sleep Country Amphitheater events from the Salmon Creek Park and Ride. Check back later for more information about the C-TRAN shuttle service.
Due to the respective Washington State Liquor Control Board, Clark County Fire Marshal and Clark County regulations, alcohol consumption, open flames and camping are not allowed in the parking lots.
Also our parking staff will be working to safely and efficiently park all arriving vehicles. It is important to keep lanes clear. For your safety and the safety of others, activity may not extend beyond your vehicle's immediate parking space, which makes any type of tailgating experience cramped, so please no tailgating.
However, we encourage you head inside as soon as you arrive. There is plenty of room inside the venue to enjoy available food and beverage.
At the end of the event, as you wait to exit the parking lots, we appreciate your patience and understanding. We are working very diligently to get patrons home as quickly and safely as possible. However, sometimes, despite our best efforts, the only thing that can be done is to wait for the traffic congestion to dissipate. If waiting isn't for you, we strongly recommended using the YES Parking or the CTRAN shuttle.
For the enjoyment of all patrons, smoking is not allowed inside the seating area, including the lawn seating area. However, if you smoke, designated smoking areas have been set up for your use on each of our outdoor plazas.
Unfortunately, at the artist's request, cameras are not allowed.
We recommend that you bring binoculars, blankets, soft seat cushions that set directly on the ground or seat, a coat or jacket and your ID.
For everyone's safety and comfort, please don't bring fireworks, outside food or drink, coolers, large bags (anything larger than an 8"x 11" sheet of paper), laser pointers, pets, weapons, umbrellas, strollers or playpens, skateboards or inline skates, or seats that elevated you off the ground. This is not intended to be an all-encompassing list, and we encourage to bring what you need to enjoy yourself just so long as it does not impinge on the safety and enjoyment of others.

Unfortunately there is no overnight camping on Sleep Country Amphitheater grounds. However, local off-site camping is available.
Feel free to bring hand held signs and show your favorite artist that you are a fan. We ask that signs are not mounted on a stick and must be held by one person. Signs can be no larger than 11" x 17" in order that the views of others are not blocked.
We have a majority rule for sections. If the majority of the section is standing, then we allow standing; if there are only a few and they are interfering with the view of others behind them, then we ask them to sit. Each situation is handled on an individual basis. Standing on seats, rails or other structures is never permitted under any circumstances.
Selling tickets to other people is strictly prohibited on Sleep Country Amphitheater property. Individuals selling tickets must do so off the property. We do not guarantee nor do we refund the money of anyone who purchases tickets from scalpers. If you purchase a ticket and it reads "Stop" or "Stolen" on our scanners then you will be denied access to the building and you will be escorted from the property. Those selling stolen tickets will be arrested.
All weapons (handguns, etc.) will not be permitted on our premises, even if you have a concealed weapons permit or are an active off-duty law enforcement official.
Alcohol is served at most events at Sleep Country Amphitheater. We strictly follow the rules of the Washington State Liquor Control Board and laws of Washington State. Guests are served no more than two drinks at a time. The areas where alcohol is served will vary depending on the event. If you have any questions or concerns regarding an alcohol issue, please contact Guest Services or Security immediately.
